hi guys, I have published a website via yola. Is there a way for me to take the website offline (so no one can view the materials from the internet) but still allow me to design the pages?

Hello Karl,

There are two things you can do:-

1. Unpublish your site so that it's not accessible at all. You can find the steps on this link: When you've made the changes, click on "Publish to the web" to publish your site again.

2. Password protect your site. That way you can continue to work on it, publish it and view your updated site. Nobody else will be able to though unless they have your site's login details. More info on this link:

I hope that helps! Please let us know if you need any further information.
